Cultura Italiana

Study Italian in the heart of Bologna, on Via Castiglione, a stone's throw from the splendid central square of Piazza Maggiore and the famous Two Towers: Garisenda and Asinelli. The language school is housed in the magnificent 12th-century Tadeo Pepoli Palace (restored in the 15th century) and contains 10 air-conditioned classrooms. Between classes, students can relax in the large student lounge, chat with friends and make plans for a night out. In the afternoon, the school organises parties and typical Italian “aperitivi". Bologna is the ideal starting point to visit other cities in the north of Italy, such as Milan, Florence, Venice, Turin and many others.

ESL schools guarantee the same excellent standards for accommodation as they do for teaching. We take great pleasure in helping you find the most suitable accommodation for you.


Host family


Experience daily life with an Italian family. This is an excellent opportunity to immerse yourself in the culture of Bologna and put your language skills into practice in a warm, friendly atmosphere. Living around 20 minutes from the school, you will have your own bedroom and will be able to freely use the kitchen in your home away from home. Half board is available on request, though the school frequently organises cooking and tasting events in the evenings that you won’t want to miss out on!

Shared apartment (from 18 to 30 years)


If you’re interested in living with locals or with other international students, the school offers a shared apartment. Students have their own bedrooms and share the common rooms and facilities (kitchen, bathroom). This is a sociable way to enjoy your stay in Italy and meet people from all over the world.
